Menopause: The Next Horizon in Equality Law?

In this podcast special, the UK and Ireland members of leading international employment law alliance Innangard, together with guest attorney Jessica Riggin of California’s Rukin Hyland & Riggin LLP, explore and offer insight into the legal position for employees and employers with regard to the menopause.

Chaired by Merrill April, CM Murray (UK), and featuring contributions from Regan O’Driscoll, CC Solicitors (Ireland) as well as from Jessica Riggin, Rukin Hyland & Riggin LLP (USA), this podcast discusses the recent coming to prominence of a topic long ignored and/or taboo, concentrating on the following issues:

– the current legal position in UK, Ireland and California and whether it is clear on the rights and obligations of employees and employers

– whether a specific type of “menopause discrimination” is needed and/or likely to come into being

– what advice we would give senior executives currently experiencing challenging/debilitating symptoms
